Tom Tinker’s Puzzles are ideal for those who enjoy a real challenge. Written from original puzzles designed by Sam Loyd. For almost half a century, until his death in 1911, Sam Loyd was the undisputed puzzle king of the United States. He created thousands of puzzles including math, word play and cut-out shape puzzles that entertained people of all ages.
Sam Loyd’s puzzle career began in 1868, when he published his first puzzle card, The Pony Puzzle. This was followed by a succession of cards including the Famous Trick Donkeys, and the Get Off The Earth puzzle mystery. In 1896, he published his first puzzle column in the Brooklyn Daily Eagle. He then went on to publish further columns in many leading newspapers and magazines during his lifetime.
